Version 0.2 of the Quixote Web development toolkit is now available.
Quixote uses Python package to store all the code and HTML for a
Web-based application.  PTL, Python Template Language, is used to mix
HTML with Python code; the basic syntax looks just like Python, but
expressions are converted to strings and appended to the output.

Notable changes in this version are: handler methods are now passed a
single 'request' object, and not a request,response pair; added a
config parser, so that Individual Quixote applications can have their
own configuration settings; the session management has been
overhauled; PTL modules can now have docstrings; and other various
minor bug fixes and enhancements.

Some of these changes, especially the first one, are incompatible with
the previously released version, so existing code will have to be
rewritten to work with this version.

Thanks to Neil Schemenauer, who did most of the packaging of this
release, and to the various developers at the MEMS Exchange who've
contributed to this release.
